All doors lead to Pom Pom’s
Retired Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy Tom Woodard has been busy renovating an old gas station in the Grand Central District for his new restaurant set to open in late June. Pom Pom’s Teahouse and Sandwicheria, a popular, eclectic hang-out near downtown Orlando, is scheduled to open its second location at 2950 Central Ave. in time for St. Pete Pride. In the meantime, Woodard is looking for people to donate old exterior doors and for artists who want to paint them. The completed artwork will be featured in the first “Art at Pom Poms St. Pete,” when the restaurant opens. If you have an exterior door—plain, cracked, decorated—to donate or you want to lend your skills to the project, please call Woodard at 407-451-5705.
